Each household may borrow only one museum pass at a time. Each household may take out a pass to the same museum one time in a thirty day period.
Borrowers are responsible for calling or checking the museum website directly for hours of operation, current exhibits, parking or directions. Each museum determines the rules and regulations governing the use of its museum pass. The museum pass may not provide admission to all exhibits at the museum.
